Playoffs - Round 2 (11/3 - 18/3) - Round to be prolonged upon request

(1) Alaq vs Doberman (12)

Alaq wins the series 4-0

Career head-to-head matches: 2-0 for Alaq (2:0, 4:1)
Pre-game preview, by Alaq:I have to say that some of the first round results were utter shocks and Doberman eliminating Maestro was probably the biggest one of them. In the regular season, Doberman won just 1 of 22 games played versus the opponents that ended up in the playoffs but then was able to get the great result in the round one. He's certainly hungry for more so I'll have to play every game with the insane focus. Historically, in all leagues that I've played, my play-off performances have been disappointment so hopefully I can turn it around in this campaign.

(2) North Star vs MyFrend (11)

Nort Star wins the series 4-1 (5:3, 3:1, 2:0, 2:3, 4:2)

Career head-to-head matches: 2-0 for North Star (2:1, 3:0)
Pre-game preview, by North Star: Never before played with Myfrend in the playoffs. He is a very experienced player, he started playing online much earlier than me. Besides, in the 1st round he already knocked out the favorite Ice Cold. What do I expect from the series with him? The answer is simple - good connection. Unfortunately, the connection with him leaves much to be desired. The game has a huge delay on its host, it will not be easy to play there. The key to winning over him is only one - a successful game on the home arena. I hope the fans of "Barclays Center" will be the 6th player for me.

(3) KonopesMaster*** vs FixxxeR (8)

Series tied 0-0

Career head-to-head matches: 2-0 for Konopes (6:3, 3:2)

(4) SteelMaster vs GargamelMaster (10)

Series tied 0-0

Career head-to-head matches: 3-1 for Steel (4:3, 3:5, 4:2, 3:2)

(5) Maestro^Master** vs Doberman (12)

Doberman wins the series 4-2 (3:6, 2:1ot, 3:2, 4:1, 2:5, 7:6)

Career head-to-head matches: 15-4 for Maestro (2:0, 5:2, 2:1, 2:0, 5:0, 8:3, 3:2, 1:3, 3:1, 5:1, 4:0, 2:3ot, 2:3, 2:1ot, 3:0, 4:2, 0:1ot, 2:1, 1:0)
Pre-game interview, with Maestro: As I dropped in the first round of playoffs last 2 seasons in a raw, I certainly do not going to underestimate this duel. Doberman is a skilled veteran player with lot of defensive qualities and even though he only reached to 12th place in league standings this year, he is still dangerous. This season I only won our mutual matches by 1 goal (2:1 and 1:0). I will have to be prepared, winning faceoffs and do everything right. I need to finally setup the IP address which I've missed whole regular season (new router is already at home!). I hope that the the recently finished Olympic tournament could bring to my play some good defense too, as I've played most of the tournament games in front of my net and defending the blue line. As I already announced sooner, this is going to be my last career playoff and I definitely don't want to end my career in the 1st round again. Nor in the 2nd! I will fight till my last breath to try to win the cup again!
Pre-game interview, with Doberman: I'd rather talk my game. The game will put everything in its place.

(6) Ice Cold vs MyFrend (11)

MyFrend wins the series 4-3 (1:3, 1:6, 3:4, 4:1, 2:1, 4:1, 4:3)

Career head-to-head matches: 8-2 for Ice Cold (4:3, 1:0, 1:2, 4:2, 0:2, 5:2, 8:0, 3:1, 2:1, 5:1)
Pre-game interview, with Ice Cold: While the head to head matches look good for me I definitely dont want to underestimate MyFrend, I know he can be a tricky player to play against. But I know I have to focus just on my game no matter who is going to play against me and IF I can find a good form for the playoffs, time and hopefully play at least couple practice matches I know I can go on a long playoff stretch and thats the plan for me I definitely dont plan on finishing early as I did in some previous seasons and my only target must be the finals.
Post-game interview, with MyFrend: It was exciting. A lot of luck was decided, but it's a game. Gratitude to the opponent for the epic series. Pleasant athlete and a real man.

(7) TibOrr vs GargamelMaster (10)

Gargamel wins the series 4-2 (3:4, 5:4, 3:2, 5:6ot, 3:2ot, 3:2)

Career head-to-head matches: 6-5 for Gargamel (7:3, 7:2, 2:5, 3:4ot, 7:6, 9:7, 1:9, 4:2, 2:1, 1:2, 2:3ot)
Pre-game interview, with TibOrr: I am looking forward to the first round and I hope it's going to be equal matches. Let's see who will have better luck but I trust to give a revenge to Gargamel for the last playoffs and go to the next round.
Pre-game interview, with Gargamel: Last year series against TibOrr were entertaining, it was an offensive battle , i think that this season it can be the same thing. But after a difficult regular season, i need to find the way i was playing last season if i want to have a chance vs TibOrr who is motivated and wants his revenge.
It's the favorite for me but i like to be the underdog.

(8) FixxxeR vs CosmiC (9)

FixxxeR wins the series 4-0 (4:3ot, 4:1, 6:0, 5:4)

Career head-to-head matches: 5-3 for CosmiC (2:3, 3:7, 3:2ot, 2:1ot, 3:1, 2:1, 6:2, 2:4)
Pre-game interview, with FixxxeR: Cosmic is very uncomfortable opponent for me. It's enough just to remember last season to understand HOW is uncomfortable. I lost only 2 games for the entire regular season, but was clearly defeated by Cosmic in the semifinal of the playoffs and all 4 of his victories were absolutely on the case. I could not oppose anything to his organized and defensive hockey...
This time I will try to take into account the mistakes and take revenge, but it will be very difficult to do this against such an experienced player.
Pre-game interview, with CosmiC: I was very dissapointed about this Olympic games, 1st. game was killed us, and we could not catch the final match. I wanted to win 2 times in a row, but i was lose. So, Stanley Cup - it is my last chance to win. This PlayOff will hard. I will play 1st. round vs. FixxxeR again. Last PlayOff matches i was win, but it was very hard. In this PlayOff, i think, i can not win him, but i never loose in 1st. round of PlayOff EMLH. I am in bad form now, but i try to show good games.
